Many non-surgical procedures in San Francisco, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic;, are considered “touch-up” treatments because they can refresh your appearance quickly with few side effects and little downtime. While there are many options available, here are my top 3 picks:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: There”s a good reason why BOTOX injections were the most widely performed minimally invasive treatment in the United States in 2011: They work. BOTOX reduces facial expression lines by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. And because the amount of BOTOX used can be adjusted, your results can be as subtle or as dramatic as you like.
- Dermafillers: Dermafillers are an excellent solution for people who need immediate improvement for facial volume or wrinkles. Fillers made from hyaluronic acid, such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, can last 6 months or more, while non-absorbable fillers, such as ArteFill®, can create sustained changes that last more than a year. I often use dermafillers to add fullness to the cheeks, lips, under-eyes and nasolabial folds.
- Lip Enhancement: Using dermafillers for lip enhancement is a great way to change your look without completely transforming your appearance. Lip enhancement can improve lip symmetry and may also reduce “smoker”s lines” around the mouth.
